Can anemia during pregnancy harm the fetus? I’m four months pregnant and was just diagnosed with anemia. Could this be harming my unborn child? .

Possible, unlikely.: Maternal anemia is grossly overdiagnosed during pregnancy in the U.S.; british studies have proven that the best maternal hemoglobin is 9-11 g/dl as a nadir around 28 weeks. If you are in that range you and the baby are just fine. I would get concerned if this gets below 8-9 g/dl and try oral iron supplementation. Consider electrophoresis if never done before to exclude hemoglobinopathies. ...Read more

Is lifting heavy object, too much stress can abort a 1 month fetus?

Is lifting heavy object, too much stress can abort a 1 month fetus?

Probably not: The normal lifting that is done around the house won't cause a miscarriage at 1 month. I wouldn't recommend more extreme types of lifting such as weight-lifting, bench pressing, etc. Lifting a laundry basket won't hurt the baby but squating with 120 pounds of iron might. Best wishes! ...Read more
